I was hoping that this "Block Party" would be like last year's "Summer of Arcade" but so far it pales in comparison.

Stop calling this "From the Creators of N+" because it's not.


It's from the dude/team that did the ONE SINGLE XBLA PORT of N+. This has nothing to do with Metanet, the actual creators of N and N+.

 
Saying Slick Entertainment created N+ is like saying Silicon Knights created Metal Gear Solid.

After watching the RE5 QL, starting to lose faith in Brad and his ability to play games.
 
Oh well, he can still sing.

Even though the last time I played an overhead racing game was at least 5 years ago, I'm don't need another one. It seems quite bland. Stick to quirky 2D games, N+ dudes!

I wish Brad just commentated or was 2nd player in quicklooks and let the other dude play because they seem to have a better idea of how to most interestingly and informatively show a game. Brad's really funny at commentating so I want him to do that instead of actualy playing the games. It's just my opinion.

Meh, it looks okay. I'm getting a sort of Calling All Cars vibe from this... That game wasn't super great.

Jeff being many times better than Brad at this on his first time playing the game was the cherry on top of this quick look.  :D

"Here he comes... there he goes" LMAO funny QL saving my points for Perfect Dark though, this isn't worth $15.  Side note, I think Brad just can't play well when the cameras are on I probably couldn't either, he seems to do fine when needing to play to review a game.

Man, sometimes it's painful watching Brad play. 
 
EDIT:  I mean, they're simple oval tracks, but they're still able to surprise Brad with each consecutive lap.

Worst case of Brading it up ever, its painfull to watch and kind of pointless. Brad is great in many ways, but why is he always playing in the quick looks? I mean i remember when "pullling a Brad" became a thing way back in the Gamespot days. That should have been a hint that maybe hes just not the man for the job, but years later he's still going weak....
